Making time to eat healthy
Many people do not have a lot of time to stop and thing about what they are going to eat. A lot of times in a person’s busy life, they do not have time to think about whether what they are eating is healthy or not.
Snacks are an important part of the daily eating process because they are a great way to keep going during the day and to get some energy boosts in between meals. A lot of times people will just head to the vending machine and get a bag of potato chips to curb their appetite and get through the day before they get home and prepare themselves some dinner.
However, there are a lot of great and healthy snacks that can be easily prepared and taken along with a person to keep them going throughout the day.
V-8 juices are very underrated snacks and drinking one of these is a lot better than drinking a can of soda. This vegetable juice has 30 calories and packs a good amount of protein and dietary fiber with its great taste.
Almonds are also a good snack that can even be kept in the pocket throughout the day. They also have a lot of protein, but when eating any kind of nuts, it is important to limit portions, because nuts tend to have a lot of calories and fat in them.
Raisins are another great, compact snack and anyone can carry a box of raisins around with them at all times. A box of raisins is filling and only has 130 calories.
People can get up a little earlier in the morning and slice themselves some nice fresh fruit to take along with them to work or school Apples, bananas, oranges and grapes are great, and it is an even better idea to combine them into a refreshing fruit salad.
The same can be done with vegetables, carrots, sweet peppers, zucchini, celery, cucumbers, and radishes are all options.
String cheese is a very delicious snack and there are many reduced fat varieties available which only contain 50 calories per serving.
Applesauce cups are also a small and healthy snack and they contain only 100 calories each.
